Everything that the Baan Unrak brand creates is designed and completely handmade by the women who work and live in the Children’s Village. Most of the women at Baan Unrak come from Burma or the neighboring minority Mon or Karen States. Thus, many of our products are inspired by traditional techniques found in these areas.

Our hand-operated looms create incredible textiles that are a rare find in today’s mass produced world. These textiles are used to create unique, quality products that are both beautiful and meaningful.

100% of the proceeds go towards the Baan Unrak mission.
